Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declined to preclude shutting the country’s boundaries to battle the coronavirus pandemic during comments Sunday.

“We have taken some very strong measures and we are not taking anything off the table,’” Trudeau said when asked if he is considering closing off travel from Europe or the U.S., Reuters reported.

The way that the U.S. is stepping its relief endeavors “gives us significant things to think about,” Trudeau said.

Trudeau offered the comments remotely from his residence, where he has been self-isolated since his wife, Sophie, detailed symptoms. Trudeau said that Sophie, who has tested positive for the virus, was “under the weather” and had a headache, however, that he and his children were “doing fine,” Reuters noted.

The prime minister repeated that the Canadian government is “considering everything” when inquired as to whether authorities are thinking about requesting that foreign guests go into separation. He likewise said his government intends to report new financial approaches one week from now to relieve the virus’s effects on individual Canadians and businesses.

The country has seen 249 affirmed cases of coronavirus and one death as of Sunday.
